Beneficiaries: All race proceeds benefit the OrKids programming at FAU Pine Jog. This student outreach portion of our Million Orchid Program is offered at no cost to the schools and introduces middle school-aged students to a plant propagation lab, and allows them to propagate their own native orchids in their regular classrooms while learning about botany, ecosystem services and restoration. All of the orchids grown in the OrKids program will remain on the school campuses, as a reminder of the project and the importance of environmental stewardship.
